A Very Happy Ending to the Story of This Year’s Book Drive!
3,170 once-loved books are again being loved by kids, teens and adults for whom getting books is not easy especially this year. Imagine the surprise and happiness of a young student selecting a book or two to take home along with food supplies from their school food pantry.
Assistance League Thrift Shop customers, members and, The Kings English Book Shop friends and customers gave new and gently used books to Title I students in Salt Lake and Granite School districts, free health clinics and, assisted living centers including the Veterans Administration. A seemingly small gesture – a donated book, turns into hours of needed enjoyment and imagination. Thank you for giving.
The happy ending to the story of the March 2021 book drive is. . . a lot more kids and adults have books!
